The BKc, Project Show recap cont’d: With so many cameras flashing from everyone trying to record an amazing moment, we are going to do our best to continue to bring you more footage from this season’s Vegas show. This year our very own Ouigi Theodore & The Brooklyn Circus was selected to curate Project 10 or the happening area as it quickly became. The energy was historic, we where given the opportunity to curate a show we were newbies at a short season ago and gained the professional nod from some of the industries most seasoned veterans for bringing together a picturesque community of designers for the 2nd edition of Project 10. Nods from extremely respected veteran Maurizio Donadi of Levis LVC previously of Diesel and Double RL. World famous designer/curator Dr Romanelli, designer Scott Langton, Project show President Andrew Pollard, Sam Ben-Avrahim founder of Project, Neiman Marcus buyer/style icon Nick Wooster & GQ Creative Director Jim Moore.
The pressure at hand is to return to the next NYc Project & Vegas show in August with more heat than Lebron, Bosh and Wade on the same team- the pressure begins. The goal: to present a fully cohesive, hand tailored, with a dash of color, our graphic past/present/future and the quality you’ve come to expect from BKc. Our beautiful shoe selection, fine tailoring and beautiful graphics can surely coexist. Gabe and Ouigi met at FIT as advertising/graphic design students, which means the love of graphic design will always be reflected in the brand as it is in their dna. Therefore, store your worries, they were busy assembling the perfect creative team to really deliver the magical balance. Might we mention that we’ve formed a mutual partnership with a Grammy award winning graphic designer and 2 of the most promising, young graphic designers in the industry. It has been a full time job trying to fill the void left by our long time graphic design partners One Twenty Six since they’ve been so busy managing their successful CXXVI brand. If this is any comfort, remember we have 95 more years to go, be patient. The BKc, Style + Character & The 100 Year Plan . . .
There are four parts to participating in a Global trade show: PREPARE, BUILD OUT, PRESENT & BREAKDOWN. If you don’t have a genuine love for this industry, every part of the process can be overwhelming, defeating or a night mare. Our way of dealing with it? RESPECT,PASSION & DISCIPLINE or as The Bearded Man calls it the Levi’s way “first ones in, last ones out”. Ruby’s version, “Never give up, Never give in”.
